Check out the first trailer and a poster for director Drake Doremus' (Breathe In, Like Crazy) new futuristic drama, starring Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Apocalypse) and Kristen Stewart (Twilight).

Taking a break from the superheroes, we have this trailer for the new sci-fi romance from indie director Drake Doremus, Equals. The film stars Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult as two company drones who come together "in a world in which love does not exist anymore".

The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival to somewhat mixed reviews, but take a look at the trailer below for yourselves and let us know what you make of it. There's also a poster and a lengthy synopsis.




Equals
 

ILAS (Hoult) lives in a future society called The Collective. The inhabitants of this modern world are a new breed of humans called Equals. Equals are peaceful, calm, fair, and polite. Life in The Collective is perfect; there is no greed, no poverty, no violence, and no emotion. The Equals go through life perfectly serene, disturbed by nothing. But a new disease is threatening everyone: SOS, or Switched-On-Syndrome, is activating in its victims everything they thought they’d escaped: depression, sensitivity, fear, love. Once a person is overtaken with SOS, they are sent away to The Den, and never seen again. Nobody says it, but everyone knows: The Den is where people go to die.When Silas is infected, he becomes an outcast, but he notices one person who seems to understand what he’s going through. NIA (Stewart) has feelings, but she seems to be able to hide them. Only Silas has noticed that she’s different. When he confronts her, they discover a connection that quickly takes over everything. They feel love and intimacy for the first time in their lives. They try to stay away from each other, because the risk of detection is too great, but the pain of being apart is even worse than the pain of living in secret. The only way for them to insure their survival is to escape. But who will help them? Where will they go? With their feelings overtaking them and their love visible to anyone they meet, how can they possibly escape undetected?

Equals also stars Guy Pearce, Kate Lyn Sheil, Bel Powley and Jacki Weaver. No release date has been set.
